Real money

September 22, 2008

Bailing out Bear Stearns: $29,000,000,000.
A government stake in AIG: $85,000,000,000.
Creating near consensus among academic and pundit bloggers: $700,000,000,000.

Demonstrating that the correct translation of “deserving poor” is “Wall Street”? Priceless.

Update: Good.
